About the resource

Tremor and ataxia are both symptoms of MS that impact movement. Tremor is described as an unintentional, rhythmic, muscle movement involving to-and-fro movements of one or more parts of the body. Ataxia is described as incoordination and unsteadiness which can affect posture, walking, eye movements and speech.

This issue provides a complete discussion of tremor and ataxia from different points of view by healthcare professionals and researchers who have years of experience in these topics. The complexity of evaluating and managing tremor and ataxia, as well as the lack of effective medications, underline the need for a comprehensive approach.
